Is there a drip coffee maker with no plastic parts?
Chemex Coffee Maker
Is there a one cup or smaller coffee maker (drip) that does not use any plasic. Also on the pods, does the water come in contact with the plastic pod when brewing? With all the bad press about heating plastic, I would like to eliminate it with preparing coffee. I have a Stainless steel percolator, but prefer the taste of drip.
Questions about plastic in coffee makers are becoming more and more frequent, for exactly the reasons you state. And the bad news is that the more high-tech the coffee maker, the more plastic there seems to be.
I don't think there are any drip coffee makers or single serve coffee makers that are free of plastic water reservoirs, plastic tubing, plastic filter baskets, plastic pod chambers, and so on.
Some French presses are almost completely made from glass and steel, but many still have some plastic parts.
If you are willing to try something different, consider the Chemex coffee maker. I have added a photo above. These are made from glass, with a wood collar and leather tie. No plastic and no aluminum anywhere.
You have to heat the water separately in a kettle, and you need to buy paper filters. Other than that, it's a real low-tech way to make excellent coffee, and totally free of plastic.
Amazon sells a variety of Chemex coffee makers
of different sizes.
Another option is to use an electric percolator, like the Presto 02811 12-Cup Stainless Steel Coffee Maker
, which is stainless steel with no plastic parts.(Also pictured above.)
